SuSanA webinar 7: Climate change and the water cycle: decarbonizing the water and wastewater sector, Dec 15th - recording available

Please join us for the last SuSanA webinar of the year, on ‘Climate change and the water cycle: decarbonizing the water and wastewater sector’ scheduled for Thursday December 15th 2016 at 13:00 BST (London time).

Link to the WEBINAR is seint.adobeconnect.com/seiwebinar/

Overview:

Climate Change is water change. The effects and impacts of climate change are most dramatically felt through changes in water. But what is the role that water plays in the international climate debate and which opportunities for collaboration exist to combat climate change?

This webinar will discuss how climate change is aggravating the challenges that water and wastewater utilities face and strategies for decarbonizing the sector. Water managers in developing and emerging economies are confronted with meeting an increased demand for water and wastewater services of a growing urban population coupled with reduced water availability and the growing pressure to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A carbon accounting tool for utilities is presented (Energy and Carbon Assessment and Monitoring), which supports utilities in optimizing their energy use and wastewater treatment processes to improve their carbon footprint.

Case studies from Peru, Mexico and Thailand demonstrate that through energy generation from biogas, energy efficient pumps, water loss reduction and water reuse, carbon emissions can be significantly reduced across the urban water cycle.

Presenters:
- Dr. Astrid Michels, GIZ, Project Manager of the Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate change Mitigation Project
- Willy Alarcon, GIZ, Senior Advisor WaCCliM Financing & Carbon Market

Schedule: The webinar will last approximately 45 minutes with two presentations and an open discussion with webinar participants. We will also open the session 30 minutes beforehand so you can test your video or microphone and meet other participants.

The webinar is being hosted by Stockholm Environment Institute and the SuSanA secretariat as part of a grant to SEI funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Time:
8:00 New York/Washington DC
13:00 London
14:00 Stockholm
16:00 Nairobi
18:30 New Delhi
20:00 Hanoi
24:00 Sydney

Dear all,
As mentioned in the presentation, here is link to a document to determine the impact of the sector in health.
